I’m Rick Roberts. I live in lovely Colorado, a fine place. I share my home with my devoted old cattle dog Crazy (aka the flying dingo), a chill cat Minnie, and a small parrot Mimi. I’m uncle to Will and Sam and brother to Melanie and Steve, who all live a few blocks from me. I cook, read, hike, listen to music, and enjoy following technology and thinking about simplicity and efficient living. I work as a unix sysadmin for a children’s educational non-profit in Boulder, a quiet job with smart, nice people.
I care what’s true and value reason, fairness, peace and quiet, and elegant solutions that mostly just work. I try to avoid noise, junk, drama, and the needlessly complicated.
The sickening event of November 8 filled me with revulsion and profound anxiety for the future for my young nephews and for all of us. More shocks to decency are surely coming.
